Thinking of checking out NBC’s newest ensemble dramedy, This is Us?

The new series, which takes a look at love, birth, death and everything in between stars Milo Ventimiglia, Mandy Moore, Sterling K. Brown, Chrissy Metz and Justin Hartley, and kicks off tonight.

From prospective parents to those searching for parents, this disparate group appears to share little in common, apart from their birthday. (The pilot episode sees everyone turing 36!), but peel back the layers of this onion, and you’ll learn what connects these people and — the show creators hope — each other.

There’s more to that onion analogy too. This show will open the floodgates. Tears that is, so have your tissues on standby.

In the following video interviews, the cast discuss what fans can expect from the series, how and why their characters tick, and what they’re most looking forward to as the season unfolds.

This is Us premieres Tuesday Sept. 20  (10:00PM – 11:00PM) on NBC.
